Snippets from Monsters At Play, about an indie horror film with an all-too-familiar title.

"Aswang, an independently produced film circa 1994 was shot in and around parts of rural Wisconsin. With a cast that was primarily comprised of local theatre actors and a crew of friends and family, the end result is indeed quite interesting to say the least.
There's a definite build up of tension in Aswang and even though some story elements may be predictable, there are still some pleasant surprises to be found within. Ultimately, in the end it's a very satisfying experience. With a very gritty and serious vibe throughout, the flick is not played off as camp, which could easily be seen as one of the films true strengths.
This is a fun and gruesome indie flick that's just waiting to be rediscovered. The presentation and extras are all top notch just waiting for you to dig right in...so what are you waiting for? Definitely recommended."
